Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Changing loop settings, part of GarageBand Essential Training (2014).
…Each loop in Garage Band whether they're…softer instrument loops or real instrument loops,…have a certain group of settings applied to them that give them their sound.…Softer instrument loops contain info the loop's notes, the order in which they're…played, how hard or soft they're played, how long they're held, and so on.…Real instrument loops contain the actual…sound recordings of the instrument being played.…We'll be taking a much closer look at how to change the settings of the…two types of instruments when we get…to the chapters on software and real instruments,…but in this movie I just wanted to show you…what some of your options are when working with loops.…
Let's start by taking a look at the drums, in a solo of the drum track.…And let's just listen for a few beats.…Now maybe I like the beat and the rhythm, but…I'm not sold on the actual sound of the drums.…Now because this loop region is blue, I can tell this is a…real instrument loop, meaning we're listening to…a recording of a real drum kit.…So we can't change the sound of the kit itself.…
